to convince harry reid a democrat from nevada and also a pro gun democrat to bring a bill up. but he has indicated in some local press back in nevada that he's not going to do that any time soon. he said the first thing on his agenda is to bring up immigration reform. so after the president is inaugurated, if you will, they are going to probably move to some wrap up stuff and then go straight to immigration reform. the question is when will the senate go to it. also leader reid said he won't move anything that can't get through the house. the house is controlled by republicans. and they are mostly pro gun caucus then it sounds to me like the senate won't take up the issue of gun safety or gun control any time soon. so we'll have to wait and see what kind of pressure the white house puts on their own democratic leaders. >> as we heard earlier, obama and members of his administration will be launching a campaign style push on this issue in the coming weeks. why is public support so key? >> basically, the president has the bully pulpit and that's someone no one in the senate or house, they
